Meckel's diverticulum attached to the umbilicus during appendectomy for a 14-year-old male!
Diverticulum simply means an abnormal pouch or sac formed due to a congenitally weak point along the intestine.
Meckel's diverticulum is the most common congenital abnormality of the small intestine; it is caused by an incomplete obliteration of the vitelline duct (ie, omphalomesenteric duct). The duct undergoes progressive narrowing and should disappear by 7 weeks' gestation. When the duct fails to fully obliterate, different types of vitelline duct anomalies appear, such as this diverticulum.
Definitive treatment of a complication, such as a bleeding Meckel diverticulum, is the excision of the diverticulum along with the adjacent ileal segment. This can be accomplished through laparoscopy or open surgery.

After 3 coffees, multiple patients, and 12 hours I am beyond ready to go home... and study :| #doctordays #medstudent #pediatrics #selfie #bagsfordays

Artificial Womb Gives New Hope to Preemies⠀

@childrensphila scientists have developed a fluid-filled womb-like bag known as an extra-uterine support device that could transform care for extremely premature babies, significantly improving chances of survival.⠀

In pre-clinical studies with lambs, the researchers were able to mimic the womb environment and the functions of the placenta, giving premature offspring a crucial opportunity to develop their lungs and other organs.⠀

Premature babies can be suspended in fluid-filled chambers for a vital few weeks to bring them over the 28-week threshold, when their life chances are dramatically improved.⠀

Around 30,000 babies in the U.S. are born critically early, between 23-26 weeks of gestation. Death rates are up to 70% and those who do survive face life-long disability.⠀

It may take up to another 10 years to develop the device but it could establish a new standard of care.⠀

Shoulder x-ray in an adolescent athlete shows widening of the lateral aspect of the proximal humeral physis (arrowhead). What is your diagnosis?

Spent the day seeing kids in the Pediatric ER! Despite getting less than four hours of sleep last night (switching from night shifts to days is hard), I really enjoyed taking care of patients and learning today. I think I picked the right specialty 😊

It's not a real pediatricians office if the sticker game ain't 💯👶🏽👧🏼

Fun Filled Family Friday here at Life Within Chiropractic! ... ☺️👶🏼👶🏽👶🏾😊 This beautiful little guy has had an auto-immune rash for over 2 years. Mom and Dad have tried numerous specialists but nothing has seemed to work... We are excited to share that after a few weeks of care, his nervous system is figuring it out! His rash has shown improvement and Mom reports he just seems happier overall. 🙌🏽😊 Side note: younger brother (who's not pictured bc he was busy getting his kid sticker fix 😜) also gets his nervous system checked- not because he has any symptoms but Mom just knew that she wanted his health to be functioning at 100%... to live life in High Def....now that's pretty amazing! Families get IT. Boom! 💥 ------------

Kliniğime gelen her ebeveynin olmazsa olmaz sorularından biridir "Hocam bizimki düztaban mı?"..Sizlerdende çok gelen bu sorunun cevabı ise; ""Ayağın longitudinal arkı (yani iç boşluk kısmı) 6 yaşından itibaren oluşur. Ayağın altındaki yağ torbaları nedeniyle 18 aylıktan daha küçük çocukların hepsinde düz tabanlık vardır. 6 yaşından daha küçük çocuklarda görülen esnek düz tabanlık ise gelişimsel bir çeşitliliktir. 10 yaşına kadar bunların büyük bir kısmı düzelirken çok küçük bir kısmında düz tabanlık sebat edebilir. Erişkin dönemde de mevcut olan düz tabanlık nadiren yürüme bozukluğuna veya ağrıya neden olabilir.""

Today is National Superhero Day, and I can't help but think of Dr. Snyder, who passed away nearly a year ago. Dr. Snyder was the chief of GI at @childrensnational when my GI issues were at their worst. We expect a lot out of healthcare professionals...we expect them to function without sleep and spend time away from their families to fix us, heal us, help us, save us, but in the end, real superheroes are humans who care. I pray often that the Snyder family is comforted by the fact that Dr. Snyder lives on in every patient he helped, and I'm carrying them, and all my superheroes, many of whom choose stethoscopes over capes (or in Dr. Snyder's case, scrubs. I think I only saw that man in a tie once), in my heart today! #morelikepooperheroes 💙💩❤️ #nationalsuperheroday #childrenshospital #peds #pediatrics #gastroparesis #pancreatitis #chronicpancreatitis #chronicillness #spoonie #childrensnational #cnmc
